Inner Life Well-Being
When someone is diagnosed with cancer or other life-threatening illness, the focus needs to be not just on  their physical state, but on their emotional state as well.  Perhaps even more so. Ideally, they may benefit by  asking these questions:          

  • Do you love and value yourself?
  • Are you at peace?…happy?
  • Are there people in your life who matter to you and to whom you matter?
  • Do you feel your life has purpose?
  • What are you passionate about?  
  • What brings you joy?

Each question could be the start of a personal session. Or each question could be a creative writing experience where there is no pre-planning but a steady flow of whatever is coming up…
